Request to take part in a survey[edit]

I am Piotr Konieczny, a fellow Wikipedian (User:Piotrus) and a researcher of Wikipedia ( I am currently (in collaboration with WMF) embarking on a project trying to understand why the most active Wikipedia contributors (such as yourself) may reduce their activity, or retire. We have a growing understanding of why an average editor may do so (see, but we have a very limited understanding of why the top editors would limit their contributions. Yet it is the top editors like yourself who contribute most of Wikiepdia's content, thus understanding this is of vital concern to Wikipedia's project future.

I am contacting you because you are among the top Wikipediana by number of edits, yet your editing activity shows a decline. I would very much appreciate if you would take a minute and answer the following four short questions. Please note this is not a mass email; I am contacting only few dozen of editors like yourself, and each response is extremely valuable. Your response will not be made public, and your privacy will be fully respected.

If you would like to help out in this project and take part in a very short survey, please send me a wikiemail, so that I can send you an email with the survey questions. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 12:28, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, did you have time to consider my request? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:31, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Million Awards[edit]

Million award logo.svg The Million Award
For your contributions to bring Earth (estimated annual readership: 2,632,000) and Jupiter (estimated annual readership: 1,762,000) to Featured Article status, I hereby present you the Million Award. Congratulations on this rare accomplishment--very few editors have earned one of these, much less two-- and thanks for all you do for Wikipedia's readers. -- Khazar2 (talk) 03:13, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

The Million Award is a new initiative to recognize the editors of Wikipedia's most-read content; you can read more about the award and its possible tiers (Quarter Million Award, Half Million Award, and Million Award) at Wikipedia:Million Award. You're also welcome to display this userbox:

Million award logo.svg This user won the Million Award for bringing Earth to Featured Article status.
Million award logo.svg This user won the Million Award for bringing Jupiter to Featured Article status.

If I've made any error in this listing, please don't hesitate to correct it; if for any reason you don't feel you deserve it, please don't hesitate to remove it; if you know of any other editor who merits one of these awards, please don't hesitate to give it; if you yourself deserve another award from any of the three tiers, please don't hesitate to take it!

I'm sorry to see you've decided to retire, but whether you someday choose to return or not, thanks for the millions of readers your work has helped, and will continue to help. Cheers and all best, -- Khazar2 (talk) 03:13, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Jason Novak[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jason Novak has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This person doesn't appear to be notable outside of their band, so it's not clear that a separate article is justified. (And this article contains no information that isn't already present in Acumen Nation).

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Nomination of Gliese 250 for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Gliese 250 is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Gliese 250 until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. StringTheory11 (t • c) 20:19, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!

More reasons to keep[edit]

Hello RJHall, long time ago you have expressed your views on Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_dictators. Now I have improved the related articles and lists with systematic findings based on published reliable sources from history and political science. However, two of them are currently submitted to Afds (by a Chinese Wikipedian who in the past has personally attacked me for my contribution to politics-related articles in Chinese Wikipedia). Your comments are welcome and appreciated: (1) Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_dictatorships (2)Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_modern_dictators_in_Latin_America. Thanks.--(comparingChinese Wikipedia vs Baidu Baike by hanteng) 15:28, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

I just noticed your departure. I will not dare adding my voice to those asking someone who's created {{Inline tags}} and done so much more for the project to return. I entirely respect your decision. If I may ask you for an ultimate favor, could you give us an idea of the reasons behind your decision?

Thank you very much --Chealer (talk) 04:30, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

It's natural to take a vacation, but hope to see you back one day, Mr Hall - at the place where the job is never finished. JMK (talk) 14:47, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
